Academy Award winners Joel and Ethan Coen certainly aren't new to Westerns. With True Grit and No Country For Old Men in their repertoire, the filmmakers have proven themselves as modern day masters of American Frontier storytelling.

Well, they are at it again, this time on the small screen with a Netflix anthology called The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. And it looks like another hit for the filmmaking duo. You can watch the trailer for the film below.

The anthology unfolds in six distinctive, unrelated chapters – let's call them tall tales about the American frontier and are told through the eyes of the titular hero Buster Scruggs, played by Tim Blake Nelson.

"The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a six-part Western anthology film, a series of tales about the American frontier told through the unique and incomparable voice of Joel and Ethan Coen. Each chapter tells a distinct story about the American West."


The series just played at the Venice Film Festival to rousing applause and received a Best Screenplay win and is now ready for a limited theatrical release on November16th, the same day it will be available on Netflix.

The film has been making the festival circuit and is playing well to critics and audiences. And it is easy to see why from the trailer that features Nelson's cartoonish cowboy, the voice-over narration, and the dark humor that can only come from the Coens.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs began life as an anthology TV show with the later decision to mold the individual episodes down into a single movie, of sorts. The six parts that make up the Ballad are as follows:

• The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

• Near Algodones

• Meal Ticket

• All Gold Canyon

• The Gal Who Got Rattled

• The Mortal Remains
